Hello Kathy​,

List them as Mr and Mrs Smith or Joe Smith and Sue Smith. There is no need to explain their relationship.

How nice that the groom's stepfather is coming and finally introducing his wife to the family. Be gracious so your niece and her new husband can begin their marriage with love and an open heart.
